In this video, viewers will watch the Proskomide (Prothesis) service, when a priest prepares the bread (prosphoro) and wine for a Divine Liturgy.
Each action will be seen, its significance and history briefly discussed, and the prayers the clergy recite with each action will be shown.
The video can be used as a supplement to study of the Divine Liturgy, worship in the Church, or on the roles of the clergy in the Church. Ideal for religious education classes for fifth grade and up.
With thanks to Leadership 100 for its support of the living Our Orthodox Faith, “the New Series,” this video is a production of Greek Orthodox Telecommunications on behalf of the Department of Religious Education of the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese of America.
